Mark Dvorak is a modern day troubadour who has
never stopped performing, writing and recording. He has
been called “a folk singer’s folk singer” with “an
encyclopedic knowledge of traditional songs.” His original
songs are described as “wondrous” and “profound.”
Though Mark often appears in theaters and on festival
stages, he is also at home in a more intimate setting.
His concerts are a mix of the familiar and the new,
traditional folk and standards from the American
songbook. He plays authentic country blues guitar and
picks great old-time banjo. Mark enjoys involving his
audiences in sing-along songs, just like The Weavers used
to do, and mixes in his own well-crafted and infectious
Mark has a refreshing, down-to-earth stage presence, and
is a very engaging performer. He sings with a clear,
signature voice, and he likes to joke around with the folks
who attend his shows. Throughout the program he’ll
interject personal anecdotes and add a touch of history or
social context to the performance.
